Democracy and national pluralism: Ethical and institutional features (DOI: 10.2436/20.3000.02.36) Autors/ores Ferran Requejo Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF) Resum The liberal, democratic and social rights included in constitutions are unable to regulate an egalitarian and equitable treatment of individuals belonging to national minorities. Moreover, it it impossible for states to play a culturally and nationally neutral role, the way they can regarding other phenomena, such as religion. Consequently, in many cases, national groups have an important moral role to play in not exhausting the individual components and dimensions of the basic values of liberty, pluralism and political equality.Original source: Revista de Catalunya, 298: 111-126 (2017) Descàrregues PDF (English) Número Núm. 7 (2017) Secció Ciència Política Llicència The intellectual property of articles belongs to the respective authors.On publishing articles to the journal Catalan Social Sciences Review (CSSR), authors accept the following terms:Authors assign to Philosophy and Social Sciences Section (a subsidiary of Institut d’Estudis Catalans) the rights of reproduction, communication to the public and distribution of the articles published in Catalan Social Sciences Review (CSSR).Authors are responsible for obtaining permission for the reproduction of all graphic material included in articles.Philosophy and Social Sciences Section declines all liability for the possible infringement of intellectual property rights by authors.The contents published in the journal, unless otherwise stated in the text or in the graphic material, are subject to a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs (by-nc-nd) 3.0 Spain licence, the complete text of which may be found at http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/3.0/es/deed.en.
